Summary: I am writing to help you guys out there. I have bought this Satnav July 2011. Pre-loaded with with Europe maps. Everyone here has had some problem with map updates. I had the same problem but managed to get it fixed myself on a Saturday when there was no help to call when TomTom help center is closed. **This is only applicable to NEW DEVICES when your mapupdates are Free after 30 days purchase**. Advices: 1) Buy TomTom WITH SD CARD memory.
Very happy with only a few pointers to bear in mind.

Summary: GOOD - Excellent size screen, easy to read. LIVE traffic updates are great and pretty accurate. Wealth of features to play with in the menu system. Good HOME software that you need to download from the Tom Tom website to be able to load updates and backup the unit etc. A very powerful unit that is not aimed at the novice.
Excerpt: My girlfriend had been pestering me for ages to get a sat nav for her car, and a few months ago i took the plunge to treat her. As we are planning on driving to the south of France later in the year, I wanted to make sure i got one with Europe maps on. I had uses Tomtom before so I knew it would be from this brand. After much looking i decided to get the next one down from the top spec Tomtom, the GO 750 LIVE. UK, ROI & Europe.
Not without its problems but still worth it in the end.

Summary: I've had the 750 for a few months now and can identify with many of the problems that other reviewers have experienced. The memory shortage was the first hurdle as I tried to update the map. According to Tom Tom support, the problem is actually caused by a bug in the Home application which fails to unload and reload all the software components in the correct order. They emailed me instructions for doing this manually and it all worked perfectly.
Summary: What a big improvement over my old Tomtom 910. The screen mount is excellent, being much easier to mount and demount. It feels, and is, much more secure and stable whilst driving. I had a problem downloading the included free map update, but this was quickly resolved by a very nice lady in their support center.

Summary: I think this is a really good product.. taken with a slight pinch of salt, which should be standard for any satnav. The live service works with a sim that is in the phone. It is on the Vodaphone network. It works in the areas it says it does in Europe for the same price. It apparently works by monitoring where other TomTom live units and vodaphone phones are and works out how fast they are travelling, so I presume the more units the more information.
Excellent - apart from initial problems due to memory capacity..

Summary: This is my third TomTom, and I have to say that the capabilities of the Go750 Live are excellent. The Google search facility makes searching for reliable and complete POI downloads a thing of the past. The live HD traffic updates have so far proved to be very accurate, and the updates are far more reliable that with the RDS system that I used previously.
Summary: The GO 750 LIVE feature packed Sat/Nav means that there is a very steep learning curve as you get to grips with it. Some of the documentation leaves you struggling for answers - the answers ARE there, but then you don't necessarily know what to ask. For instance there are constant references to using the Preferences menu, but mine was not there once I'd made some selections. The Preferences menu only re-appeared when I re-set the software - not very clever!
Summary: Dieses TomTom Go 750 Live 12M Navigationsgerät schlägt selbst viele neuere Navis aus gleichem Hause in Punkto Zuverlässigkeit. Mein Altgerät war wegen eines defekten Ladekabels "gestorben". Ich bin nach längeren Recherchen jedoch dabei geblieben und habe ein gleiches Gerät nochmal erworben. Lediglich die Spracheingabe macht hier kaum Sinn. "Er" versteht mich zu selten, deshalb 1 Stern Abzug.
Summary: Tomtom werkt redelijk goed. Af en toe uitgevallen maar gelukkig ging hij het wel weer doen. In het begin alleen schandalig dat je wel een geheugenkaartje er bij moet kopen. Het geheugen was veels te weinig om hem bijv. te updaten. +ik heb gelukkig wat kennis van de pc want als ik dat niet had gehad was het een echt vervelend ding geweest. Maar goed ik ook niet zeggen dat ie echt slecht is.
